Denver Nuggets small forward Michael Porter Jr. is out for the "foreseeable future" with a back injury, according to head coach Michael Malone.
“This is a process where we’re being very cautious, talking to doctors, getting imaging all that kind of stuff," Malone said.
Porter Jr. left Saturday's game against the Houston Rockets and did not return. So far in 2021-22, Porter Jr. has played nine games, averaging 9.9 points, 6.6 rebounds and 1.9 assists.
The Nuggets were 5-4 heading into Monday's game against Miami.
